Hardwax Oil

Natural and white

Proff Woodcare Hardwax Oil is fast drying and suitable for use on all untreated interior floors and woodwork in general. Hardwax Oil offers a strong protection against fluids and dirt and produces hard wearing surface. Hardwax Oil is applied with a floor machine. The floor may be pre-oiled with Proff Woodcare Proff Oil or Proff Colour Oil and Hardwax Oil is then used as a top coat. Hardwax Oil produces an extremely hard-wearing, water repellent and dirt resistant surface. It also enhances the natural grain of the wood whereas Hardwax Oil white lends a white wash finish either to pine or oak. Hardwax Oil is a fast drying oil and based on natural vegetable oil and wax. It is an open pore finish which does not crack or blister. Apply oil to sections of approx. 20 m2 at the time. This allows enough time to work the Hardwax Oil well inside the wood grain.

Work Instruction:

1. Make sure that the floor or woodwork is freshly sanded and cleaned with Intensive Wood Cleaner. Ensure that the floor is completely dry before starting the application of the oil. Moisture in wood should not exceed 12% relative moisture content.

2. Stir the can well and ensure that the wax is well distributed evenly distributed in material before application. Apply 1 liter of Hardwax Oil to 10 to 15 m2 of floor with a short haired paint roller or brush. Let the Hardwax Oil penetrate the wood grain for up to 15 min. Now work the material into the wood grain with floor machine mounted with beige or red pad. If Hardwax Oil is used as top coat only, apply approx. 1 liter to 30 m2 of floor.

3. If not all material could be worked into the wood grain, scrape the excess material onto the next section of the floor or remove. Continue in this way till complete area has been coated.

4. Now buff the complete area with a white pad under floor machine.

5. After a 6 hour pre-drying of the area, buff the whole area again with white pad under the machine possibly with a small application of Hardwax Oil to ensure a perfect finish of the wood.

6. Leave the oiled area to dry for 24 hours. Do not expose the floor to water during drying time. After 12 hours, the floor may be used with caution. Cover walkways with corrugated paper.

7. Use Proff Woodcare Wood Floor Soap or Proff Woodcare Oil Refresher mixed with water for regular cleaning
